Looking for an authentic outback adventure with a difference? Dream about walking amongst the stars?
Then a visit to Lake Tyrrell, just 80 kilometres from Swan Hill, is a must for any nature enthusiast or budding photographer.
The 120,000 year old lake is regarded as one of the best places in Australia for star navigation, with the dark and endless skies providing the perfect environment to view the dazzling spectacles of the southern hemispheres constellations.
The unique salty formation on the lake bed has also become a mecca for international visitors looking to capture that once in a lifetime photo opportunity, over the shallow lake's refective surface.
From the Swan Hill Clock Tower, travel west along McCullum Street and head out of town. This road transforms into the Sea Lake- Swan Hill Road. Continue on this route for approximately 70 kilometres, until you reach the township of Sea Lake. From Sea Lake, turn right onto to the Calder Highway. Travel three kilometres and turn a slight right onto Bailey's Road then a further right onto Lake Tyrrell Road.
Please drive your vehicle on designated roads only.
